How to care for Zebra Plant
Zebra Plant needs 0.5 cups of water every 12 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot located in Arcadia, California.
Use our water calculator to personalize watering recommendations to your environment or download Greg for more advanced recommendations for all of your plants.
Zebra Plant may have difficulty thriving, and will drop leaves 🍃, without ample sunlight.
Place it less than 3 feet from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth during this time of higher sunlight intensity in Arcadia, California ☀️.️
This is a great time to watch your Zebra Plant thrive 🌿!
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Zebra Plant after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
Super easy plant to take care of i highly recommend for first time plant owners. They only need watering every month or so, I’ve also found that they tend to do best when they’re close to a radiator and window (one or both). When in the right conditions they grow babies very quickly. I have found that the tips of their leaves brown very easily but it hasn’t caused any major problems as of yet :)))
Easy to take care off. Don’t give them too much sunlight. If you do it turns a reddish tint, warning you to give them less sun. Simply place in a window that gets some shade or area where it’s not too sunny. Indirect sun is better. It likes to stay rather dry as a succulent. Make sure your soil is a nice cactus gritty blend.
I’ve had this plant for a year or so and it has yet to show signs of it sickness! It has grown, but not a whole lot, and it doesn’t take much care to keep alive and well. Keep of of windowsills or large exposures to sunlight, however. One time, tried to give it a large amount of sunlight, and it seemed to have a red/brown sunburn of sorts. When removed from the windowsill, it returned to its beautiful color. Overall, an amazing plant!!
